Today at the gym I did a chest/triceps/shoulders/traps workout. I work my triceps pretty hard on these days, and they're feeling great right now! Looking forward to a few less intense workouts next week.

Build those traps and you'll have an awesome balanced physique.

Not that you don't already. :)

Thanks Zack. Yeah, it's getting there. Taking a couple weeks off of running and focusing on hard workouts at the gym has made a big difference. It makes me wonder what I would be capable of doing if I focused 100% on bodybuilding...

There's a BB competition here in town in a couple weeks, and I might check it out to see if it's something I'd want to do in the future. We'll see.

For today's workout, I pushed myself a bit harder than usual since it was my last time doing this workout for a little while. I did a biceps, back, and abs. This will be my last small angle training workout for now. I've seen some great results but it's pretty demanding and I'm getting a bit run down. So next week I'm going to do exclusively bodyweight exercises and maybe some freerunning. Then I'll see where I'm at and decide whether to switch it up to a pure strength program or something else. If I decide to do that total body competition that pamela mentioned, I might split up my training days into deadlifts, bench, and body weight endurance.

I've got some pics taken today, and I'll post them in a little while. They look ok, although I'm not as defined as a couple months ago when I was running lots.

Before the site went dark this week, I mentioned that my back was a bit sore. It was feeling better Tuesday afternoon, so I tried going for a run. A couple minutes in it kinda seized up and felt alot worse. So I'm going to take some time off from running and weights until my back feels 100%.

I'm going stir-crazy already, though. Five days without exercise is rough. It's not as bad as tapering for a big race, but I'm not enjoying it.

Thanks robert. :)

After almost two weeks of exactly zero activity (apart from walking maybe 30 minutes/day), my back is finally feeling better again. I don't know exactly what i did to it, but I'm going to be extra careful for the next little while, because this this not something that I want to experience again.

I may go for a run tomorrow, but it is supposed to be very cold all day. Like, -25C with the windchill. So if I do a long run it'll probably wait until Sunday. But we'll see.

Well, today isn't much warmer than yesterday, but I went for a run anyways. I ran for about an hour in the snow and wind. It was quite cold running into the wind for the first 30 minutes, then it was actually fairly warm on the way back. It felt good to get back out there again.

I ran about 7km this afternoon. It snowed alot the last couple of days, and although the sidewalks were plowed there were lots of snowbanks and puddles to jump over. It made for slow running but a good workout.

Hmm, I think I've forgotten to log a couple of runs the last couple of days. I was back in the gym today for the first time since I hurt my back a few weeks ago. I did some legs and abs, and spent some time on the stairclimber.
